Recently I purchased some Corsair Vengeance RGB 3466Mhz (8x2) to upgraded from my 2400Mhz ones. ever since I have received them and plugged them in the motherboard I have had issues with all my games crashing and sometimes my PC freezing.

CPU-Z says my DRAM frequency is at 1732.9Mhz (which is correct), but my NB frequency is listed at 1732.3MHz. Also, in BIOS it says profile 1 is at 3200MHz while profile 2 is at 3466MHz.

I have currently tried manually setting the timings (16-18-18-36). Also, downgrading my clock speed to 3000MHz. I have tried running one stick or ram, updating bios. switching RAM slots. I have run out of ideas and need y'alls help.

Specs:
Ryzen 2700x non-oc
MSI b450 bazooka
Zotac rtx2070 8gb non-oc
16gb corsair vengeance rgb 3466MHz (8x2)
1t samsung 860 ssd
2 wd 2tb 7200rpm HDD

Try running the new RAM at the spec of your previous RAM to see if your crashing/freezing issues go away. Faster RAM puts more stress on your IMC in the CPU so you may be hitting some limits there.

I have tried just running at the default 2133 MHz and it still crashes.

Something else seems to be going on. Can you reset BIOS to stock everything and test?
Already done. i have had to reset CMOS multiple times. the only thing that seems to be interesting is that the Nb frequency is only 1732MHz, but when I watch videos people using CPU-Z their NB frequency runs at like 3400-4000Mhz. My NZXT CAM program also says my ram is at 50% load at 4gb even though it recognizes there is 16gb.

What if you load up CPU-Z? Do you see 1733Mhz in the exact same spot you are seeing >3400Mhz in the videos? 1733 x 2 (because it's DDR) = 3466. Depending on where you look in CPU-Z you will see both speeds listed.

No. when I look at DDR frequency it says 1733Mhz but the DB frequency says the same thing. On multiple videos i have watched while trouble shooting the DB frequency is the >3400mhz while their DDR frequency is whatever half their DDR speed is.
